A fine WWI portrait of a sailor with a 'HMS St George' tally around his cap.

HMS St George was built by C & W Earle of Hull and was launched in June 1892. She was a first class cruiser of the Edgar class.

HMS St George has an interesting and distinguished service history. She was sold for breaking up in 1920.
